Today, we're releasing a report on our work so far in responding to the devastating impact of Cyclone Komen on western Burma.
Over the last three months, the Health and Hope team have been providing food and medical aid to families affected by the flooding. So far, we have been able to distribute 1,487 bags of rice totalling 74,350kg of food aid. In addition, cooking oil, dal and other non-perishable food items were distributed to those in need. We were also able to deliver 400 clean delivery kits to pregnat women and run free health clincs in 47 locations across Chin State.

Our relief efforts have provided the equivalent of one month’s food to over 8,900 villagers. However, due to the long term impact on agricultural land and the loss of key transport infrastructure, we expect food insecurity to persist over the coming 9 months.
Many of you have donated generously to the work, for which we are enormously grateful - we couldn’t have achieved all that we have without your support!
